McCabe's defensive play has been pretty inconsistent/mediocre this year. His game, in general, seems to be heading downhill as he only had 2 points (0 goals) in his last 11 games. The last time he scored a goal was 13 games ago.
That powerplay time that he's had and done very little with this year will now likely go to Kulikov.
More experience for Kulikov on the PP + experience for Ellerby is really the best thing for this team long-term, and really...possibly a better scenario short-term as well, considering how McCabe has played recently.
I really respect him playing through that injury though, as I said earlier.
I think though Eric, his leadership, vocal and by action, will be missed if this little run turns into more. I cant believe the guy played with a broken jaw, thats just ridiculous. Kudos to Cappy.
